Head Girls Coach Jacque Davis said, "I am so pleased with the clinic and how Kat ran it. She did such an amazing job. I love watching her teach because she is such an amazing athlete and she is filled with so much excitement and passion that it's impossible to ignore how much she cares about the sport and women's involvement/advancement in it. She truly is an inspiration to all girls out there in the wrestling world!"
